The Chicago House Sound

BY NEIL STEVENSON
@ VOL 36 ON DEC 01, 2015

"The kick drum went through my chest, the bass line came up through the floor, the high hats and cymbals came fizzing from above ... when the smoke machine cleared, there were rich people, poor people, black, white, straight, gay ...and I thought, 'these are my people now, this is my music'."  

In The Chicago House Sound from PechaKucha Night Chicago Vol. 36, IDEO's Neil Stevenson went on a quest to find the roots of House Music that, during its evolution from New York to Chicago and then in its momentum across Europe, he fell in love with. Here he shares that compelling quest and his love for Chicago House, its evolution, and the legacy of Frankie Knuckles.
